Let me tell you'all a story about a man named,"Boone". Or is it really "Boon"?
There is some confusion over the spelling but Daniel Boone did put Boonesborough or Boonsboro on the map in 1775
while working for the Pennsylvania Company to find new land.
He built the settlement of Fort Boonesborough on the bank of the Kentucky River in Madison County.

Historical account of his adventures...
Boone lived here till 1792 and saw Kentucky admitted to the union as a state. Litigation arose about the titles of settlers to their lands. Boone, losing all his possessions for want of a clear title, retired in 1795 in disgust into the wilderness of Missouri.
He died on September 26, 1820 at 86.
